A Bean Party, the Big Game and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, February 2, 2018

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In a city like New York, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from a bean party to the big game. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.


F For Fake

F for Fake, Orson Welles’ celebrated docufiction on fakes, frauds and flim-flam men is as incredible now as it was when it premiered in 1974. Although subjects like forgers Elmyr de Hory and Clifford Irving faded into obscurity long ago, Welles’ film makes them seem as alive as ever.

Dinner at Jade SIXTY

East 60th Street has slowly become something of a restaurant row, with hip eateries like Le Bilobquet, Philippe, La Goulue and, now, Jade SIXTY. Since it opened last month, the Asian-fusion spot has become a favorite of celebrities like Bruno Mars. No wonder—as owner Stratis Morfogen told AVENUE, its menu “went through about 500 tweaks” before he was satisfied.

Horticultural Society of New York Green Bean Bash

There are still quite a few weeks until spring, but beat cabin fever at the 6th annual Horticultural Society of New York Green Bean Bash. The family-friendly event features an afternoon of nature arts and crafts, interactive exhibits, whimsical green creations and tasty eats.

Saturday, February 3rd, from 12-3 p.m.


Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed

The Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch is best known for his 1893 masterpiece The Scream. But Munch’s career was much deeper than that one painting, as Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed at the Met Breuer shows. Catch it before it closes on Sunday.

Super Bowl LII

To the plebeians who don’t remember their elementary school math classes: this is the 52nd annual Super Bowl game, and with a match up of arguably the craziest fan bases in the country, it will certainly be an interesting one. The Eagles and the Patriots will face off in Minnesota on Sunday. New Yorkers who are upset about the matchup can take solace in the fact that Bill Belichick won’t be headed to New York next year . . . and you probably won’t be headed to work on Monday.
